42 Days and All That

Well the events of the past few days in Westminster have been breathtaking. Labour got their crazy 42 day proposal through only by selling out to the DUP. If Gordon Brown thinks that this is an endorsement of his premiership then he's deluding himself. The simply fact remains that there is no justification for this and it's yet another attack on personal freedoms in this country. Frankly the Government is doing the terrorists jonb for them.

Next David Davis resigns to force a by election on the issue. For the first time in my life I found myself agreeing with him. The Tory Party leadership though appears to have scored a huge own goal by failing to support him wholeheartedly. Thank God that the Liberal Democrats reallyt do believe in freedoms. If we didn't exist you'd have to invent us.
